Could be in the wrong forum but i think it suits some of the topics. So awhile ago after a night of drinking and playing video games i turned to a
good friend of mine and said can you imagine if something like this was real? so curious to see if there are parasites out there that alter perception
and our instincts we went on the internet and we found Toxoplasmosis!
So what is Toxoplasmosis?
Toxoplasmosis is a parasitic disease caused by the protozoan Toxoplasma gondii.
what does it do?
Toxoplasma gondii manipulates the behaviour of its host in order to increase its chance of finding a new host
If you'd like to now more watch this video I do not own it
So basically my idea i'd like to discuss is the link between Toxoplamosis and some cat owners who seemingly hoard cat's could they themselves be
Hosts? Could this parasite literally be making them want to have more cats around them to so it can continue it's reproductive cycle and survive?
Please try to be nice my first proper thread! just something i'd like to discuss because i find it interesting!
look forward to hearing what you think!
Could it be apart of religion? The egyptians loved cats... didnt they start all this junk? So now maybe its not so strange we see people unjulating
wildly on the floor professing their loyalty to an imaginary magic man and stuffing peices of paper in a wall while babbling for hours.
I find your theory interesting and maybe not entirely impossible. That would be a pretty genius parasite to know what emotion to trigger within a
Candida yeast overgrowth feeds off of sugars and carbs and makes you crave sugars and carbs. And if you don't eat them it can effect your mood. So
parasites can definitely sit in the drivers seat sometimes.
Personally I would be happy to have a house full of cats (within reason) if money and time allowed for it. I love them and never tire of their sweet
furry little faces no matter their age. But I think that's just adoration of the feline species. Now the people that hoard cats and don't properly
care for them, maybe there's something there.
I remember reading somewhere that a very high percentage of car accidents could be contributed to a parasitic brain bacteria. It normally affects
fish and makes them want to be eaten by birds, and then reproduces in the bird intestinal tract and then gets pooped back into the fish water and
infects more suicidal fish. In humans it only serves to dull the reflexes a little bit, nothing serious.
Study it!!! Cure it!!! My reflexes could use some sharpening, and I eat just about anything, so I'm sure I've probably got it.
Although, for whatever reason, I noticed after my kids were born, my reflexes sharpened to almost precognition stage!! I was catching falling glasses
at the dinner table even before they fell, and catching tumbling kids before they hit the ground. It was amazing!! Some kind of adaptation for
fathers I suppose? It is starting to dull again now?
I once saw a video of Joe Rogan ripping into some Brazilian guy and insinuating he had this parasite. It was kind of funny (maybe staged?). Anyway,
that is an interesting idea about the cat hoarders. I never thougt about that.
No. Bacteria evolve but they are not intelligent. I am a cat owner by choice and have many cats (dogs too) because I have compassion. That's not a
conspiracy, but more or less a trait lacking in too many humans which is why there is such a severe overpopulation of animals.
Bacteria in and of itself do not have a central processing center or a brain, they are comprised of DNA surrounded by cytoplasm and ribosomes, a
plasma membrane and cell wall. That's about it. Their DNA is evolving to withstand assaults by B cells and T cells and antibiotics, and that DNA is
doing a pretty darn good job too. But, the bacteria itself is too primitive to be capable of making any kind of intelligent decision for its own
